Reprogramming Canadian car to be configured as US

Well this came up in the FOB programming thread and I figured I would bring it to the front in hopes that more people would see it that may normally ignore the FOB thread(s)

I have a Canadian spec car. It has now been imported into the US. Being Canadian specd that means I cannot program fobs among other things. It has been mentioned that I should be able to go to a dealer that has a Tech2 and they can reconfigure it as a US car. I just called one dealer and it was like I was speaking martian to him. "ahh I don't think that is possible or where to even look" and that is one of the big chevy dealer's in the area. /facepalm..

Does anyone have any experience or hard data on that? Even better would be info on where in the tech 2 they would need to go in it to do this..

or over to Minnesota... :)
When I was doing various testing of IPM settings it maybe took 10 minutes to perform the various tasks needed when the IPM is reset/reconfigured.
(change IPM settings, re-save the VIN, calibrate brake pedal position sensor)

I've had my IPM set to Germany for a long time now to kill DRL the only "issues" I guess this causes is that occasionally the car says there should be more modules on the GMLAN than there are as it is expecting to see the Steering column lock module and probably the auto leveling headlamp modules. but that is just one of those silent codes that dont seem to do anything. I've not had any other side effects of this change that I'm aware of.

I've not tried to reprogram FOBs while in this configuration.
